Counselling Procedure

The counselling procedure will consist of the following steps from choosing their course to paying the admission fee. 

Choosing the Course: 

Candidates will be provided with preference based on their rankings and thus will need to decide what branch and sub-branch they wish to opt for according to the exam they have taken. Candidates will need to reach the counselling venue at least a half-hour before the scheduled time. Candidates with higher ranks will be given a better preference.

Verification of Documents: 

Candidates should carry their original documents (as listed below) in order to have them verified. If the candidate has all the required documents and they have all been verified to be accurate, then the admission process can continue. Failure to produce a required document or a failure to verify the documents will result in the candidate not being allowed to proceed with admission to the Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology. 

Allotment of Seats: 

The candidates will be allotted a seat in their desired course based on the course’s availability, the total number of seats, and their own ranking. This step is only taken after all the candidate’s documents have been verified. 


Candidates will need to pay the counselling fee in order to gain admission into KIIT with the allotted seat. A demand draft must be issued for the same. 

Steps to Apply for KIITEE Counselling: 

Counselling is generally available only for candidates who have cleared the KIITEE examination with a sufficient rank. Reservation is also available for candidates in certain special categories.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. Is there any additional fee to be paid during counselling?

The counselling process will require students to bring a Demand Draft of Rs 75,000 in favour of KIIT. This amount also includes the Rs 10,000 counselling fee, which is non-refundable. Any balance fees will need to be paid as per the fee structure which the candidate may pay upon the day of reporting to the institution. The demand draft in question will have to be payable at Bhubaneshwar. Payment in cash is not allowed, as only demand drafts will be acceptable in this scenario.

Candidates who have applied for the KIITEE will receive the results via email (can also be checked on-site) and will later also be able to view their own schedule based on ranges of rankings along with the corresponding KIITEE counselling dates 2020.
